SUNDRIDGE JIG - Smash The Windows


Brad McEwen brought my attention to this tune - published in the pages an English Folk Dance and Song Society Journal from 1933.

It's a curious version of the old chestnut "Smash The Windows" although there's also a touch of "Haste To The Wedding" contained in the first part. It was collected by someone name Allan B. Sly from an un identified fiddler at a square dance in Sundridge, Ontario. (east of Parry Sound) It's in C rather than the usual key of D and has a surprising F# towards the end of each part.

I've included a transcription and MIDI file below, as well as the page from the EFDSS Journal.
